I`m quite shy and insecure: Lady Gaga

London: Pop star Lady Gaga says she is not comfortable talking to new people, especially from showbiz.

"People think I`m really confident, but actually I`m quite shy and insecure. I never want to talk to anyone at the big celebrity functions because I don`t know anyone and I`m shy and get awkward," dailystar.co.uk quoted Gaga as saying.

"I like my real friends around me, so that`s why wearing the meat dress was so great because it stunk and no one wanted to talk to me," she added.

However, the 25-year-old finds it easier to bond with animals and birds.

"I did a shoot recently with real little doves and put them down my cleavage. They loved it down there. They were just sat looking around," Gaga said.
